Uganda uncertainty mars Tullow results

first_imgWednesday 9 March 2011 8:06 pm Uganda uncertainty mars Tullow results Show Comments ▼ KCS-content OIL explorer Tullow Oil posted a 361 per cent rise in pre-tax profit yesterday after a “transformational year”, though its shares fell 3.2 per cent due to concerns about its Ugandan project and some missed forecasts.The firm said its pre-tax profit for the year was $152m (£93.8m) for the year, short of consensus estimates of $192m, which was blamed on higher than expected write-offs and administrative costs. Surging oil prices caused a 19 per cent rise in revenue to $1.9bn, while production was broadly flat at 58,100 barrels of oil per day.Investors were hoping for an update on Tullow’s $10bn Ugandan joint venture with Total and CNOOC, which has been awaiting government approval for close to a year. Tullow did not give new details on the partnership, but chief executive Aidan Heavey later told reporters: “We’re at the stage now where all the main points have been agreed so we’re just finalising the documentation.”Heavey said in a statement that 2010 “was undoubtedly a transformational year for Tullow” and that production could rise to up to 92,000 barrels per day this year. The company said it expects its new Ghanaian wells to reach a rate of 120,000 barrels per day within five months, with a local stock listing also in the pipeline. The Jubilee field is the site of Ghana’s first commercial oil production and is 34.7 per cent owned by Tullow. But the firm said it has given up on two oil blocks in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which it lost last June when the government re-awarded the exploration rights. whatsapp center_img Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

German gaming machine bodies demand online casino regulation

first_img Tags: Slot Machines Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Slots Email Address Germany’s leading gaming machine manufacturer and operator associations have expressed support for the third amended State Treaty on Gambling, but called for future regulations to go further by legalising online slots.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter German gaming machine bodies demand online casino regulation 16th September 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle Germany’s leading gaming machine manufacturer and operator associations have expressed support for the third amended State Treaty on Gambling, but called for future regulations to go further by legalising online slots.The Automatenverband Niedersachen eV (AVN), Verband der Automatenkaufleute Berlin und Ostdeutschland (AV), Fachverband Spielhallen (FSH) and Bundesverband Automatenunternehmer (BA) stated that they welcomed the State Treaty, as it would “break the deadlock” and see online sports betting licences finally awarded.However, the quartet added, this was “only the first step towards re-regulating the market”. State Minister-Presidents have agreed to implement the Treaty for a short time, to 30 June 2021, to finally award sports betting licences. Efforts to limit the market to 20 licensees were derailed by legal challenges, until the regulations were amended to remove the licence cap in March this year. The new regulatory framework must ensure that players were channelled away from illegal offerings, to avoid jobs and tax revenue being lost to offshore providers, and to ensure a high level of youth and player protection, the associations said.“Therefore, the associations are in favour of applying the regulatory approach adopted for sports betting to commercial slots,” the associations said. They argued that by applying a qualitative approach to online casino licences, lawmakers could ensure that players were attracted to legal offerings, and away from unlicensed sites.“The State Treaty on Gaming points in the right direction,” Heinz Basse, chairman of the AVN, said. “But lawmakers must be careful not to repeat old mistakes. Effective regulation must be based on the quality of the companies [in the market], as high quality companies ensure effective player and youth protection.”BA president, and AV chair, Thomas Breitkopft added that qualitative, rather than quantative, regulations were the future.“Only a reasonable legal framework can ensure efficiency and consumer protection,” he said.In August, the European Commission criticised the treaty, warning that it offered little incentive for operators to secure licences, though lawmakers have claimed this will not prompt any changes to the legislation.Analysts have suggested that the restrictive framework, in which sports betting is the only product permitted, but with no in-play wagering allowed, and a €1,000 monthly spending limit imposed on players, could see licensees’ German revenue slashed.last_img read more

Polish bookmakers call for temporary tax reduction

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Finance Sports betting Strategy Poland’s Association of Employers and Employees of Bookmakers has called on the country’s government to step in and help the sector avoid significant job losses as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The industry association said it has seen the number of bets placed drop by around 60% due to the cancellation of sports across the globe. This decline is expected to worsen, it warned, particularly after all retail bookmakers in Poland closed from 14 March.As a result bookmakers have seen customer spending disappear, meaning they are losing money, with no way to mitigate the shut-down.This, the association said, would result in efforts to reduce fixed costs, icluding mass redundancies, with many operators now facing bankruptcy. The situation could result in most of the 5,000 staff employed in betting shops, not to mention head office staff, risk losing their jobs, it warned.The sector is already struggling with significant offshore competition, which a Supreme Audit Office (NIK) report published in September last year estimated to account for around 51% of total gambling spend each year.There could also be a knock-on effect on state coffers, the association added. The regulated Polish gambling industry has an annual turnover estimated at PLN7bn (£1.36bn/€1.53bn/$1.69bn), of which at least PLN820m goes to the state through gambling and lottery taxes.To avoid job losses and protect the state’s tax revenue, the association urged the Polish government to reducing gambling tax rates from 12% to 10% of turnover at least until August this year. In addition, the association asked the government to delay the deadline for paying these taxes to September. Under normal circumstances, the taxes are paid monthly.Earlier this month, the Polish Ministry of Finance claimed the market share for so-called ‘grey’ operators fell to 18.5% in 2019, below the average across the European Union (EU).In January, legal association Graj Legalnie reported that regulated bookmakers in Poland generated combined turnover of PLN6.7bn (£1.36bn/€1.58bn/$1.76bn) in 2019, a 28.8% year-on-year increase.

Philadelphia workers say, ‘We will shut city down’

first_imgPhiladelphia AFSCME workers protest at Mayors’ Summit May 23.WW photo: Betsey Piette“Welcome to the city that doesn’t pay their workers.”That’s how Pat Eiding, Philadelphia council president of the AFL-CIO, introduced the “Mayors’ Innovation Summit” of the U.S. Conference of Mayors held in Philadelphia on May 22-24 and hosted by its president, Philadelphia’s “Mayor 1%” Michael Nutter.Nutter has recently overseen the closing of 25 Philadelphia public schools, along with an increase in poverty, imprisonment, police violence and destruction of the public sector union jobs and services due to his forced austerity programs for the people here.Holding signs which read, “No More Mayor for the 1%, Lets Build a Better Philadelphia for ALL,” over 500 workers assembled at the opening of the conference, blocking traffic in front of the nonunion Westin Hotel in Center City.Leading the demonstration were the city workers of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Empolyees District Councils 33 and 47 as well as Local 1971, with their sea of green and their shrieking whistles. City workers have gone five years without a raise, while their pensions have lost value and their health benefits have become more costly.“The mayor would rather go to the courts than negotiate,” said Pete Matthews, president of District Council 33. “If we don’t get a contract we will shut this city down. Not one city worker will work! I don’t care what the cost is. People fought life and death for this. This is the biggest fight you have ever seen in this city.”Labor leaders Cathy Scott of AFSCME District Council 47; Yvette Jones of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers; John “Johnny Doc” Dougherty of the International Brotherhood of Electricians Local 98; Jerry Mondesire, president of the Philadelphia NAACP; leaders of the Firefighters and Paramedics Union (IAFF 22); and AFSCME’s first ever woman secretary treasurer, Laura Reyes, joined other union members and community organizations in an unprecedented show of union-community solidarity.Shouting “No contract, no peace!” 400 more people assembled on the second day of the conference and marched to City Hall to deliver a petition with some 3,000 signatures to the City Council to demand a fair contract with no concessions.While the mayors met with executives from Comcast, Google and Urban Outfitters, Nutter did not once mention the plight of city workers in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, the crisis for city workers and their families has only deepened.A study by Michael Bognanno, Temple University associate professor of Economics, reported: “The analysis shows that a significant portion of the combined membership of District Council 33 and 47 are below the poverty line set for a sole earner in a family of four [$35,310]. The extent of the membership below the poverty line has roughly doubled since 2007, the period of time in which the membership has gone without a pay increase.” (dc47afscme.org, see important documents) Public sector workers face crisis of capitalismThe budget crisis facing Philadelphia city workers, teachers, firefighters and virtually every other worker for the past five years has been created by the crisis of the economic system of capitalism. Based on a small group of incredibly wealthy people who control the political, economic and social conditions of the rest of humanity, capitalism has reached a dead end.In effect, the need for capitalist production to be profitable, combined with the enormous increase in productivity through new technology, has made it impossible for the capitalist economy to resume growth.Public workers, who serve the people without regard to whether their work is directly profitable, are under attack by a vast confluence of forces involving Democrats and Republicans, corporate executives and their lobbyists. This coordinated attack on public services on the one hand gives priority to having state and local governments pay back loans and interest to the banks.On the other hand, these forces seek to create a new profitable sector by privatizing existing public services, like schools. Yet the austerity measures which seek to privatize jobs while busting unions and lowering living standards for millions will never bring the system back to life. Destroying these living wage jobs and replacing them with minimum wage jobs means workers can buy even less of the goods and services they produce. This aggravates the capitalist crisis.Yet there is a way out. Consider the inspirational words of Pete Matthews in the streets in front of the U.S. Conference of Mayors that were cited earlier in this article. Workers have the ability to shut down every part of society. Not a wheel can turn nor a burger be flipped without the millions of members of the working class.Now is the time to prepare, to organize workplaces and to unite workers on a common program of demands for our human rights, demands which the capitalists in Washington, on Wall Street and in the City Halls are unwilling and unable to meet. With this, we can begin to build a society run by workers, not Mayor Nutter and his corporate allies.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Women outscore men in effective manager skills

Comments are closed. Female managers are more able than their male counterparts and their skillsadvantage increases with age, research reveals. In a study of more than 400 managers conducted for the East MidlandsDevelopment Agency, women scored ahead of men in all six core managementskills. Managers were graded on managing people, personal effectiveness, leadership,team working, communication and planning. It was based on a questionnaire by training company Exponential, which askedthree colleagues and the managers themselves to rate their performance. Exponential MD John Moore, said: “Female managers consistently scoredhigher than males in each core management skill and this became more noticeablefor managers over 39 years old. It would be very useful to explore thedifferent learning and development strategies adopted by male and femalemanagers.” www.exponentialtraining.co.uk Previous Article Next Article Women outscore men in effective manager skillsOn 9 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. read more

Going green in Kent

first_imgThe regeneration of land and properties owned by The Bay Trust in St Margaret’s at Cliffe, in Kent will create 14 eco-friendly homes in the village.The scheme at St George’s Place promises to set new standards in the design of healthy, low-energy lifetime homes.In 2013 following the culmination of years of meticulous planning and local consultations the charity agreed the sale of the land to a green developer.Since then Pete Halsall and his team have shaped their plans resulting in a housing scheme to build 14 homes on a one acre patch of open land.To replace this open space, The Bay Trust is also proposing to spend around £160,000 creating a new public open space on land it owns, adjoining the village primary school.A planning application for St George’s Place has now been submitted to Dover District Council. If approved, work is expected to begin by the end of the year.The Bay Trust’s Executive Director, Charles Bicker, says, “The plans for St George’s Place have been carefully shaped to maximise a range of positive environmental and social impacts locally. Any future financial returns will be invested in a range of charitable initiatives we are working on within the district.”Kent low-energy lifetime homes The Bay Trust eco-friendly homes December 5, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
